The vehicle has been designed to comply with the new regulations for the IMSA GTP and World Endurance Championship hypercar classes.

These classes will be adjusted to allow the same vehicles to compete in both series, Fox reports.

These rules dictate that the next generation of IMSA’s top-flight cars must use a chassis from one of four manufacturers, a hybrid system and a choice of engine, car and driver reports.

The new 2023 endurance racing regulations call for leading automakers such as BMW, Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini to join the competition.

Cadillac is the reigning IMSA champion and will debut its new hypercar at the 24 Hours of Daytona.

According to Fox, Cadillac has not competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans since 2002.

The Project GTP Hypercar is the result of a partnership between Cadillac Racing and race car manufacturer Dallara.

The competition vehicle was designed with input from Cadillac’s exterior design team, led by Chris Mikalauskas.

Contemporary exterior touches within Cadillac design include sharp edges and smooth aerodynamic surfaces.

Limited specifications were released for Cadillac’s Hypercar.

What we do know is that the hypercar will feature an all-new 5.5-liter DOHC V8 engine.

GM’s head of sports car racing, Laura Klauser, explained why Cadillac is developing a new engine.

Klauser “We wanted to make sure we were getting the best possible solution out of an engine package, to make sure we were competitive and had the right combination with the chassis, rather than trying to make something we already had,” Road and Track reports .
